environment go in with the right knowledge and the right attitude and you can see the tactical unit at the bottom there and the crisis response civil military operations center that was there to provide the command and control of those tactical units responding on the military side, this provided a perfect environment and opportunity for them to be able to interact with the civilian partners and provide the most appropriate response and understanding. very complex and again i just want to reiterate that the military, we know when we're responding in this type of environment that we're not coming in with the heavy capability and saying don't worry, we're here to help you and take over, we're here to complement and support you with the appropriate ways that you request our needs. the next few slides that i'm going to go over here shows some of the military capability and how some of those responses that we did during this exercise can also be applied at home in a domestic environment such as a response to maybe an earthquake here in san francisco. so the first part up there, you see
bottles, even if you leave them in a cold environment, you don't know where they've come from or they've been in ship holds which is really hot, just as a number one rule, if you smell something plastic don't drink out of it. >> that's good advice. >> i have two questions, they're a little bit unrelated but the first one goes on the scheme of plastic, so plastic wrap, plastic bags, you know, it's great to say we should all use glass but we know what's used out there is plastic, and it's reusable, you can come up with all these ways to avoid it but there's plastic everywhere and it's accessible and cheap, so plastic wrap gets used a lot, there aren't that many alternatives that can do what plastic wrap does, i don't use a lot of it and it's harder to store things long-term and same question applies for the freezer, it's easier to put things in a freezer bag. >> so, a little tip for that is i do admit to using plastic bags, i reuse them and if something is not -- i don't use them for liquids and if something isn't somehow already kind of like a solid or whatever, parchment paper around

the cats that are in this pretty complex environment and trying to get them moving in a common direction. >> general baldwin? >> first, i'm very, very encouraged at the direction the department of defense has taken in changing the way that we do support the civil authorities. and the evolution, the problem that came out of the l.a. riots that were highlighted during hurricane katrina, we had two milltrix out there, the active force and responding. with changes in the law and changes in focus and direction we're starting to fix a lot of that and come together as one joint team to be able to better serve the people here in the state of california and the rest the nation in times of disaster. but there is work that needs to be done. first, we need to find a way that we can share capabilities that are resident within each of our organizations. as the commander of the army national guard you would think i know what forces are available in the army reserve in california. but i don't. i don't even know who their general officers are. i have no visibility on what forces are available at camp pen

to pass comprehensive legislation, a couple of weeks ago, tony testified in front of the environment and public works committee on why we need to pass and get the safe cosmetics out there on the floor of that senate, he did a fantastic job and i stole this off the video which is archiving, you can watch it, and this act would call for quick action on the chemicals of greatest concern, would increase access to basic health and safety information on chemicals, would use the best science to assess safety, so not old science but new science, would seek to protect vulnerable populations like we talked about way back when, right, prenatally and in pregnancy, those ones that are maybe more vulnerable to chemical exposures and also to reduce exposures in communities with unfair burden of exposures, we know that very often, poor communities, communities of color, communities with less resources are exposed to higher levels of chemicals so we have to reduce that unfair burden because they already have enough unfair burden, so that calls for some comprehensive changes and we want to see those h
and i think what you are probably saying is, you know, maybe we should consider very severe environments in case of a disaster which personally i think that's how we train and probably most of your environments. maybe you want to start from a place of more limitations rather than less and one of them is not doing that kind of coordination via cell phone. again, i think this was, last year there was a table top, this is the first time we're actually doing a drill. there's reason for growth and as bijon said, maybe next year we are meshing xhapld and control so command and control is done over the exercise com link and keeping it separate. i think the point is well taken that the recommendation i made, i think we can introduce more rigor into the execution of the com drills next year. >> any other questions? panelists, thank you very much, i appreciate it. let's give them a big round of applause.

cooperation. many want to throw it against the wall. it's not a conducive environment >> there's a lot of reasons to be concerned. if if you want to fill in texas that community tactfully. you know what, health and innovation now, we are going to need immigration lawyers. america has not come to grips with the risk issue in hell. it's going to take risk, and right now, we live in a risk-averse environment and a government environment that can take risks. in many ways they are afraid they will get criticized in the press or media. neil: they said businesses to risks and we ended up bailing them out, so we are averse to risk and that the ma because every time they do this, we pay for it. >> and health and medicine, we're going to have to take risks and figure out how to create new drugs and create new innovation. neil: synonymous with simona mr. conaway what you're talking about? >> there's there is a difference between the weather and climate. it's raining today, it's not raining tomorrow. the climate is the key. are there problems in healh and medicine? you bet. we need to figure out h
to helman and nimruz province. very complex dynamic environment that we were operating in but before i begin it talk to you about the operational picture, i just want to give you a snapshot of afghanistan. when we got there i want to set the frame here so you understand what we're dealing with. afghanistan ranged 180th out of 1 86 on the world bank list of developed countries. 20 percent of the babies won't reach their first year of life. there is a 44 year life span for your average citizen. it has a less than 20 percent literacy rate and girls in afghanistan will marry by the time they are 15 and will likely birth their second child by the time they are 20. so this is the long-term effects of violence and civil wars within a failed state by every measure. the marines who are currently still in southwest afghanistan, they are surrounded by very conservative culture. in 2010, this is not true now but narco trafficking and helman province alone was the fourth largest trafficker of heroin in the world. the taliban controlled the region and this is the environment that the marines ca
in a statewide environment. i think the biggest thing for me, there's several scenarios that are challenging us, one of which and one of our fears, and it's been in the newspaper so it's not a secret, but one of the things that scares me as well is the united states is not really experienced what i would call a global disaster yet. we have had disasters, i was in katrina on an urban search and rescue team, i've been in pretty much all major engagements as far as wild land fires in california, but if you look at a global disaster perspective where you have a hundred thousand victims like a tsunami or a large scale event, we have yet to experience that in this nation. i think the agreements we have here today and the relationships we develop today are going to be key to mitigate that. the other scenario that we are concerned with is a coordinated aerial incendiary attack by al qaeda. one of the things we've seen already in the european union is suspect of al qaeda starting fires in the eu if that happened in california in the right weather conditions, it would be disasterous and everybody in
of the impact of nightlife activity and maintaining safe environments. to facilitate the implementation of effective based approaches and nightlife approaches. to have knowledge how these can be managed effectively and network and working on an international and national level so we have a number of different themes. there is certainly an alcohol on alcohol and tobacco and other drugs and how they impact the viernlt. and health and safety standards, emerging trends in club culture, international nightlife tourism, policy and policing and public safety and nightlife associated with nightlife venues, sexual health and preventing violence in these settings and these are a number of themes the commission deals with on a regular basis and as a franciscan i think san francisco has a fair amount to say how we manage it and bodies like the entertainment commission are ways to engage the nightlife and entertainment communities in productive ways and improve public health and public safety, so you have the fliers that has the dates. it's at the mark hopkins hotel and it's going to start on may

where we all count on each other. it's a stimulating environment if you like change and rapid change, amazon is a great place to be. >> rose: beyond what you have said characterize the culture of amazon today. >> well, i would say that the culture of amazon starts with an externally facing culture looking at customers as our touchstone. so companies can be kind of competitor focused. and that approach can be successful. or i think they can start with the customer and that can also be successful. so some companies have kind of a conqueror mentality. if you look at their annual strategic plan it starts with their three top enemies and who they are going to crush this year. and some companies, and certainly amazon is in this group. we have an explorer mentality. so we like to go pioneering. we like to find dark alleyways and wander down them and see if they open up into broad avenues. and sometimes they do. with that pine earring exploring mentality is what drives us. the core of the culture. and over the years it's self-selecting. the people who thrive at amazon and stay at amazon and
. >> glen canyon park is an extremely special and diverse environment with the mix of natural amendties and others. >> the challenge that the public has before them with any, capital project is to balance those. it is a very large park, 67 acres. the renovation is focused at the southern end of the park and i want to show you that the yellow zone that is indicated there and this permit is only addressing that area of the park. the renovation project is focused on the southern end, and closest to the center, the most active portion of the park, which is where the well-used and well-loved ball fields, rec center, including the gym, playground and two tennis courts and provide active opportunities for the public. the project which is funded for the 2008 clean and safe neighbor parks bond would provide a much-needed improvement to the park. here is some images of the different facilities all of which are very out of date and in poor condition. the project will provide much-needed improvement to the park including a larger children's play area, new tennis courts and improved paths and entran
know the interest rate environment is pretty low when it is low, and we know when we go to the markets today we will not have any cash flow issues, the interest will range from three to four percent. but because we don't have... we don't intend to issue until 2017, we have used an assume rate of 6 percent. and in doing that, we will realize in circumstances where we will have the deficits where the general fund will have additional dollars. so we are proposing that in the event that occurs, that if we continue to collect the revenue more than we need for that service, we would fund that med assessments will repay the city for those deficits. the next one is the stabilization fund, we know which hotel and revenues that are volatile, so the city negotiater will travel that will fund a stablization fund for future losses in all losses in revenues. and the amounts of $15 million and the goal is that as we move that portion of that $15 million it gets replenished and so it will be maintained through the term of the cod. in addition, as you know, the term of the district expires in 2045, we
it was a headache and eye sore because it was a dump and literacy for environment brought a group of their students out to check out what was going on at the power plant and those young people came out here and saw a park and a wetlands and they went back and they said "we want to work with the port to clean that up because we want to learn how to build a wetlands" and what you see today is the vision of those young people that was supported by community members, the tenants on the port, the industrial activity on the port, as well as the port, and all of the other city agencies that were required for this happen, so i want us to really celebrate partnership. there are many times when we're at each other's throats. every everybody who is a city employee around here knows that i am really happy to let lose and complain and criticize. all of that is part of making sure that what we wind up with is the best for the city and this is an example of that. we worked hard. we fought with the bike coalition because we want to make sure whatever bike path went down cargo way, cargo way okay was going to
